Following adoption of the 10-Year Plan, rates changes have been set at a 9.7% increase for 2018/19 and 3.8% annually after that. This is a reduction from the rates proposed in the draft Plan. Over the next three years, the Council will complete the transition to full capital value rating, a process begun in 2015.
There will also be a three-year transition to a Uniform Annual General Charge (UAGC) of $500. The UAGC is a fixed portion of rates and not an additional charge.
